TEI by Example offers a series of freely available online tutorials walking individuals through the different stages in marking up a document in TEI (Text Encoding Initiative). Besides a general introduction to text encoding, step-by-step tutorial modules provide example-based introductions to eight different aspects of electronic text markup for the humanities. Each tutorial module is accompanied with a dedicated examples section, illustrating actual TEI encoding practise with real-life examples. The theory of the tutorial modules can be tested in interactive tests and exercises.

Summary

The Centre for Scholarly Editing and Document Studies (CTB) of the Royal Academy of Dutch Language and Literature and the Centre for Data, Culture and Society of the University of Edinburgh have been pleased to revise and upgrade these tutorials for those wishing to learn TEI by Example. Featuring freely available online tutorials walking individuals through the different stages in marking up a document in TEI (Text Encoding Initiative), these online tutorials will provide examples for users of all levels. Examples are provided of different document types, with varying degrees in the granularity of markup, to provide a useful teaching and reference aid for those involved in the marking up of texts. These tutorials are relevant to the trainers of TEI, the students of TEI, the text encoding community and digital humanities community in general.

These tutorials were originally developed in 2006 by The Centre for Scholarly Editing and Document Studies (CTB) of the Royal Academy of Dutch Language and Literature, the Centre for Computing in the Humanities (CCH) of King’s College London, and the Department of Information Studies of University College London. Small project funding was received from the Association of Literary and Linguistic Computing (ALLC, now the European Association of Digital Humanities). A fully online version was made available on this website from Spring 2009. Since then, the tutorials have been used in Digital Humanities courses worldwide. In Summer 2020, the original team behind TEI by Example have fully updated these training materials, to align them to recent developments in the TEI guidelines, and to ensure that the infrastructure that hosts these tutorials is upgraded, with small grant funding from the Edinburgh Centre for Data, Culture and Society.
